Mis-sold Endowment Mortgage PPI Reclaim
Endowment and PPI policies are 2 different types of financial products.
PPI (payment protection insurance) was usually applied to a loan, credit card or mortgage to protect the repayments in case you were made redundant or unable to work due to an illness/disability.
An Endowment mortgage policy is similar to a regular savings plan that will run along your interest only mortgage. The Endowment policy would usually finish (mature) at the same time as your mortgage and was designed to pay out a lump sum to repay your mortgage in full. Sadly, for many people the endowment failed to perform and suffered a shortfall.
